Why do people lose weight when they have short bowel syndrome?


We had discussed short bowel syndrome in class the other day, and touched on the topic of how it causes people to lose weight. What are a few reasons why? Atleast two different reasons would be very much appreciated. :)

Most people don't realize how much waste can be trapped inside our bodies. Experts estimate that most people have 10-15 of waste trapped to the inside of their colon walls. Imagine how unhealthy this is with all these toxins sitting inside us. Oprah had a guest on her show that talked about how we need to make sure that we clean our bodies of this rubbish.  (+ info)

Can a short guy be manly without looking like he has short-man syndrome?


Someone who's 5'5'', can he appear manly? In what ways can a short man be manly without looking like he has short-man syndrome? Would a short man appear manly if he was the strong-silent guy who is calm most of the time and speaks with everyone calmly??

In Short Bowel Syndrome, why is it necessary to use a Central line?


why do we use a central IV line for TPN?
i know oral route cannot be used, but for clarification, my question is more about central vs. peripheral route.

----------

TPN is a very concentrated nutritional formula and cannot be given through peripheral veins as it is irritating to the vein. By giving it through a central line into a central vein the TPN gets diluted quickly as there is a greater volume and flow in a central vein versus a peripheral one.   (+ info)

A short definintion of crest syndrome?


I don't really know what it is, but i think my mother has it. I need to be able to explain it to her, but with good facts and detailsv with it not being to technical-sounding, i guess lol. Thanks!

I'll try and explain: CREST stands for Calcinosis cutis, Raynauds phenomenon, Esophageal dysfunction, Sclerodactyly adn Telangiectasia.

Calcinosis cutis: small nodules (usually multiple) that are moveable and not tender. (a depostion of calcium salts)
Raynauds: when exposed to cold the hands and feet blanch white, then a few minutes later turn blue. This is a blood flow problem and may be painful.
Esophageal dysfuntion: small amounts of collagen will be noted in the esophagus (throat).
Scerlodactyly: the fingers get stiff, the skin smooth and shiny. Often, the fingers will have a flexing that causes them to look like "claws"
Telangiectasis: there can be multiple red spots on the face that are caused by underlying blood vessels being dilated. This may also cause significant bleeding if these vessels are broken.

Hope this helps. Kind of hard to explain in "laymans" terms.

Hi....my son is 4 yrs old and has DS as well. he too is short for his age and looks more like a 2 yr old than a 4 yr old. below are some height and weight charts for children with DS. they use a different chart than ''typical'' kids. I wouldn't worry too much about it. kids with DS often are smaller than ''typical'' kids their age. as long as she is eating healthy and has no other health problems. though I would recommend getting another pediatrican....sounds to me like yours isn't of any help. try contacting your local down syndrome association and ask if they can refer you to different doctors that specialize in DS in your area  (+ info)
